ASUS and Gigabyte have entered into a legal tussle officially and below is
the statement issued by ASUS :

ASUS condemns the defamatory and false accusations raised by our
competitor, Gigabyte. Gigabyte, without a full understanding of ASUS´
engineering design and methods, has made false accusations against ASUS
motherboards´ EPU features and the quality of ASUS´ motherboards´ components.
Also, in a press briefing presentation, Gigabyte used a photograph with blown-up
(exploded) capacitors and led the audience to believe it was an ASUS product, to
support its false allegations that ASUS uses questionable quality components.
However, the image was found to be taken from a photograph of a VGA card
manufactured by another vendor. The action of misrepresenting a third party
product to be an ASUS product is truly defamatory and clearly outside the realm
of decent competition.

ASUS takes pride in its innovations, which are measured against the highest
standards in the industry at all stages of operation – from project development,
engineering, manufacturing to service. Through a combination of the best
quality-controlled components and processes, ASUS delivers state-of-the art
technology breakthroughs to meet customers´ needs. Every breakthrough is the
result of huge R&D engineering efforts. Hence, while it is common to have
competition among companies, the use of the above mentioned methods are
defamatory and condemnable. ASUS deeply resents Gigabyte´s action. Yesterday
(May 22nd 2008), ASUS has reported such acts to the Fair Trade Commission of
Taiwan. Today (May 23rd 2008), ASUS has officially filed a lawsuit against
Gigabyte for those defamatory acts.
